10 Campaign: To better prepare students to be critical thinkers and career ready by implementing Experiential Learning throughout the curriculum

11 Experiential Learning Experiential learning is the process of making meaning from direct experience. [1] Simply put, Experiential Learning is learning from experience. The experience can be staged or left open. Aristotle once said, "For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them." [2] David A. Kolb helped to popularize the idea of experiential learning drawing heavily on the work of John Dewey, Kurt Lewin, and Jean Piaget. His work on experiential learning has contributed greatly to expanding the philosophy of experiential education. Staged experiential learning is often called a Dynamic Learning Experience (DLE) in certain high hazard industries. [citation needed] [1] [2]David A. KolbJohn DeweyKurt LewinJean Piagetexperiential educationcitation needed Experiential education is a philosophy of education that describes the process that occurs between a teacher and student that infuses direct experience with the learning environment and content.
